Hello, I am Sanchia Parker
I love being a dietitian, I can talk about food all day. If you ever find yourself in a conversation with me and mention food or nutrition, bring snacks. It might be a long chat.
Over the years, I have spoken to literally hundreds of clients from so many different backgrounds. Be it young or old, active or sedentary, vegan or meat-lover, diabetic or celiac, mum-of-six or young professional. They all have one thing in common.
They want a healthy, happy life.
I love working with them to help them achieve that. Everyone is different, and blanket nutrition advice is not helpful for everyone. Everyone has different backgrounds, activity levels, priorities and health concerns. It takes time and patience (for me and the client) to address what they want to change and work towards changing that. But when the changes do happen, and people reach their goals, it’s the greatest feeling.
A lot of people I talk to are confused because when they seek out health information they find that the amount of nutrition and health information available is absolutely overwhelming. A lot of nutrition information found online or in media can be incorrect, misleading or downright dangerous. And with everyone being so different, health information needs to be tailored to each specific person for it to work.
I created this site as a place that promotes credible, evidenced-based information to help those looking to reach their health goals.
